We all know that bikes are photogenic – not to mention their riders. The Sydney Rides Festival clearly agrees and they’re showcasing top snaps at the Sydney Rides Gallery at Paddington Reservoir Gardens during the festival from 6 – 27 October.

More exciting still, amateur and professional photographers alike are encouraged to submit images – 30 of which will be selected to be exhibited at the gallery. The guidelines for submission are as follows:

“The image must show a reference to a bike, bike rider or other feature (for example bike lane or symbol). References can be subtle or in a more obvious manner. Judges are looking for images that engage and inspire.”

Each photographer featured will receive a prize of $150 and the overall winner scores $750 to splash at a local bike shop of their choice. We call that a sweet deal.

Entries close 11.59pm (AEST) on 10 August.
